Well if you follow me on twitter or Instagram you already know, but if you don’t then Sunday I was fortunate enough to go to the Super Bowl. It started Tuesday while I was in Maine and got a work email saying there might be extra tickets so let them know if I was interested. I certainly was! I found out Thursday night that I got them and was in shock, I still can’t believe that I was there. The trip started off with an early wake up call on Sunday morning where I drank breakfast on the way to NJ.
Don’t worry I wasn’t driving! The hotel was about 10 minutes away after we crossed the bridge and it had a phenomenal view.
Since it was going to be a long day I knew I needed to have a large lunch as my main meal. Luckily there was a restaurant doing brunch with Mac and Cheese, sushi, bagels, and mozzarella. All my favorites and I had a full plate. Then it was back to the room to get ready.
With that we were there 4 hours before kickoff. Yep 4 hours! It was more than enough time to look around and take pictures.
Checking out our seats only 11 rows back! The time passed quickly and it was then time for the pregame festivities to start! The first was just the teams coming out and warming up.
I was expecting some sort of fly by after but was not expecting so many and so close! They were barley skimming the stadium. I managed to snag a picture of the tail end of two.
My camera stayed in the pocket for the game because I was way too busy cheering, screaming and dancing in my area to take pictures. Then an announcement came on during the commercial time out that in the goodie bag on our seats there were hats that were being used to be part of the halftime show. So I immediately pulled mine out and put it on.
Oh my fun! I then wondered of this was a precaution to not have the power go out again. Either way it was so cool because there was a computer chip in them and it was being controlled so they were lighting up Pepsi logos and going in tune with the music. Like when the Red Hot Chili Peppers came out they were all red
The second half of the game flew by and a lot of Bronco fans were leaving which was fine because hawk fans moved closer and soon we had a huge cheering section. The seconds wore down, the crowd started to roar and the confetti went off!
It was truly an unbelievable experience and I’m so grateful I got to be there. I didn’t realize how much I was walking until I got back to the room and looked at the fitbit
